The Super Link Preview system plugin it's automatically creates link preview like social media platforms (like facebook) when you are posting a link.

It fetchs the title/image/descirption and display it nicely in your website.

How it works

The Plugin fetches the URL provided and extracts from HEAD of the HTML page the following META-TAGS: Title, Description & Image
Title & Description are standard HTML meta-tags fields. The image is fetched from tags for social media (og:image, twitter:image).
If image tag does not exists then it requests a webpage screenshot through API of screenshotlayer.com, most of the website has meta-tags for social media platforms. If your site does not have, consider adding og tags.
